The Xbox Xecuter Blaster360 is a modification that installs outside of the Xbox 360. The chip alters the way the operating system works to allow third-party program files to be installed on the hard drive, as well as other functionalities. The procedure for installing a RAR-format file is straightforward, once the Xecuter Blaster360 has been installed, and requires a USB flash drive and a computer. You do not need any expertise in how the modification works in order to put the RAR-format files on the Xbox’s hard drive.
